  1. So the Tigers get the 6 pick after second round ends?
  2. Does anyone know how revenue sharing works and how the Tigers qualified for it last year?
  3. Last year when I paid I had issues with the website so I called my agent and he was suppose to pay for all of it. When my tickets came opening day wasn't there, I called and he said I didn't pay for opening day. He asked me if I wanted them, I laughed and he said some people didn't want them. I think it is their way of opening up some opening day tickets. Long story short they have always listed my opening day separate because the seats are always different.
  4. I think they charge the buyer a $5 conv fee to print the ticket too, I'm pretty sure they make $30 in your example.
  5. I didn't say Jackson was better. There was a point where we had far too many guys that we couldn't do anything with in regards to sending them down if they were struggling which is no longer the case and some how all the trouble Dombrowski has gotten him into was rebuilding his entire roster, building a superior team while cutting his payroll by $25million in just 2 yrs.
  6. I have 2008 - $137, 2009 - $128, 2010 - $129, 2011 - $105 I guess you are missing the point. Sure they spent the money, the move wasn't made to save as much as it was to reallocate. Going forward they have a younger, cheaper more flexible roster.
  7. Right which means the payroll was 115 plus 13+ for sheffield for a total of 128+. Just cause they cut him doesn't mean they were off the hook.
  8. But did he say they were GOOD major league ready? He's probably run 10 RPs through here since he said it. Like I said thay are the most unpredictable position on the team. It's not just about talent, its mental makeup and other intangibles you can't really explain. How Benoit could pitch like he did last year is a perfect example, did he show any indication before that that was coming? The fact that Cleveland built their pen the way they did more than proves my point. Seeing how they've performed, don't you think they'd have been harder to get?
  9. IMO bullpens are luck, the same guy who is lock down one year can't get anyone out the next. Get them any which way you can because they are far too unpredictable. I'd prefer Cleveland's way but I can't say it will work again. I hated the Valverde/Benoit signings for that very reason but I can't complain about the results. Matt Joyce was turned into Jackson/Coke/Shlereth/Scherzer but we did get an all star game appearance out of it before he was flipped. Lets not act like Joyce is more than what he is, how's he doing in the last 2 months? He has had a very Boesch 2010 like season, hasn't he? Are you dismissing the Peralta trade? That was last year.
  10. I read it as it was market rate, not other guys made bad mistakes too. In 2005 you had to pay around $180k for a 1200 sqft bungalow, in 2011 you can get that same house for under $100k. Was the guy in 2005 stupid or could he have lived in a box until 2011 knowing the price was going to be cut in half in 6 yrs?
  11. Didn't think they were overslot? Thought Tigers didn't draft any good/expensive players this year.
